Escape to a spacious 4 bdrm/4 bath home on a secluded natural beach minutes from Monterey & Carmel. Spy on bottlenose porpoises from your window as they frolic in the surf and watch the Brown Pelicans swoop over wave tops collecting their dinner. Enjoy whale-watching, kayak amongst the otters and sea lions in the Elkhorn Slough, and grab the binoculars to bird at the Audubon sanctuary at the end of the beach.
Head into the quaint fishing village of Moss Landing, home to world-renowned marine biology research institutes and great antiquing. Don't forget to bring a pot - Phil's Fish Market (winner of Bobby Flay's 'Throwdown') will fill it with their famous Cioppino to take back and enjoy as the sun sets over the Pacific. Grab a loaf of sourdough, steam some artichokes from one of the local roadside produce stands and open a bottle of Chardonnay or Pinot Noir you picked up at your visit to one of the many renowned Central Coast wineries and vineyards in the area. (Ventana, J. Lohr, Wente, Bernadus to name just a few!).
Movie by the fire, a trip to the clubhouse for a relaxing whirlpool or maybe just a soak for two in the deep tub in the master bath? Afterwards, slip into your big comfy bed and let the sound of the waves carry you off to sweet dreams.
You're well-rested for your early morning tee time at nearby Pebble Beach or one of the other amazing golf courses nearby. While your foursome heads off, the rest of the crew are playing tennis, bocce ball and shooting some hoops at the clubhouse.
Afterwards, they will meet you for a drive down the coast to Point Lobos and Big Sur. A late lunch or early dinner at cliff-top restaurant Nepenthe provides the most breathtaking ocean views you have ever seen.
Remember that you've promised to take the family to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium. The kids want to head to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk as well to ride the enormous wooden roller coaster, pick up a game of beach volleyball and dance in the sand at the free spring break Battle of the Bands or one of the summer Friday evening concerts.
The family has reconnected and you haven't played this much in a long time. You have captured the serenity that comes with the relaxed life of the California Central Coast and really you don't want to go home. You know you have now found your spot to retreat and recharge, and like the others before you, you are already planning your next trip back.

Beautiful and All the Comforts of Home!
This was our second time staying at Colleen's beautiful home. With two families vacationing together (4 adults and 4 kids), her home is cozy enough to enjoy each other's company but spread out enough when all needed their own space. Each couple had their own master suite and the kids each had their own rooms and bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable and there are plenty of blankets and towels. Her home is also very clean and organized. The kitchen is fully stocked from spices to dishes to cookware. We made some great meals while we were there. We love opening the back door and walking right out to the ocean. The sunsets are AMAZING! We are avid tennis players so having onsite courts is a bonus for us. Besides being right there on the beach, her home is close to Monterey, Carmel, and Moss Landing, so it's easy to go to the Aquarium or Pebble Beach. Highly recommend Phil's Fish Market and The Bench at Pebble Beach. We truly feel we are at home when we stay at Colleen's home. It is relaxing and a great way to vacation for our families. Highly recommend Colleen's home!
Great view and Condo I just wish it was closer to food and stuff to do but had a great time. Saw whales from the living room
We were 3 retired couples from Pennsylvania in Monterey for 5 days and our stay at Colleen's home was exceptional. The home was perfect for 3 couple and the location is spectacular . She's was a pleasure to work with and you would be doing yourself a favor if you stay at this Monterey property.
Very nice home with amazing views
Really nice home with super views of the beach and the seals . Located in the beach in a very quiet private setting. Close to Monterey for restaurants and shopping
Perfect, peaceful, and pristine
This house is the perfect place to stay if you're looking to completely getting away.....Fully stocked kitchen and spacious. Wonderful patio to watch whales spouting and breaching from afar, dolphins, birds, otters, harbor seals, and of course, the beautiful sunsets. A quick 30 second stroll to the beach and ocean. Simply put....our happy place. Highly recommended. :)
Best vacation ever!
This lovely home had everything we needed for a wonderful week at the beach. It is very spacious and comfortable. The home is between Santa Cruz and Monterey so we were able to enjoy both places and come back to a nice, relaxing home.
So glad you had a good time and that you enjoyed the house. We were happy to share it with you and welcome you back for future vacations!
